Dental Mission Trips
As a lifelong learner in the field of dentistry, Dr. Yon Elejabarrieta believes that it is important to give back to those who are less fortunate. Many developing countries do not have access to adequate dental care – if any – due to a lack of available dentists as well as other issues specific to that country’s situation.
A major part of Dr. Elejabarrieta’s goal as a dentist is to become involved in dental mission trips across the globe. He has already taken part in multiple mission trips to the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Nicaragua, where he has worked with a team of other volunteers to administer the essential dental care that these countries’ citizens of all ages need.
From tooth extractions and pediatric care to preventative dentistry and dental health education, your dentist has helped protect the smiles and overall well-being of many deserving yet underprivileged people.
